Each of tonight's guests has contributed a volume to
Porcupine's Quill's beautiful Essential Poets Series. Amanda
Jernigan selected and edited The Essential Richard Outram; Ingrid
Ruthig selected and edited Anne Wilkinson, and Shane Nielson selected
and edited Travis Lane. Each one talks about how and why s/he chose
the poems; each one reads poems from his/her poet, and each has
brought a poem set to music, just to top off the magic.
